    This week...
    We loved having the Levellers here. Two new tracks recorded here had their first live outing this weekend at the Royal Albert Hall. They sounded awesome. Well done chaps! Also welcoming back Nick Davidson this week. Sounding great!

From their early gigs in Brighton in the spring of 1988 — in venues such as The Richmond and The Zap — Levellers were a ‘gang band’ that attracted an instant following. Then as now, just like their heroes The Clash, they represented a potent brew of activism and hedonism. Their music appealed to the head, the heart and the feet in equal measure. The self-styled ghetto kings of downside town, Levellers never looked back. And on and on the river flowed.

Over the years Levellers have worn many masks; most self-made, some imposed upon them. Pastoral folk-punks, poster boys for the underdogs, Top of the Pops-bothering pop stars. But while their status has evolved over the decades, the basic humanity underpinning their music has remained constant. Often political, occasionally angry but always big-hearted, their songs became instant anthems.

They have co-written 20 chart singles and 6 Top 40 albums (including a Number 1) and are festival favourites and have cemented their cherished status with headline performances at Glastonbury, Isle Of Wight, Cambridge Folk Festival, Bestival and Boomtown and many European and UK events and in 2003 they successfully created their own annual Beautiful Days Festival which takes place in August at Escot Park in Devon.
